The first day of the new school year is just around the corner. With new distance learning for kiddos and parents becoming impromptu teachers, it can be overwhelming to prepare your home in time for the first day of school. To help set your family up for success for back-to-school season at home, here are some tips and tricks to ease into a new family routine.
Create a Weekly Schedule
On Sundays, create a visual schedule for the week that includes daily learning topics and schoolwork due dates. Establishing a routine and setting start times takes away the stress and allows everyone to focus on the activity. Integrate family fun activities such as yoga on the grass, crafting a card for a distant loved one or keep the learning going with activities like baking to learn about fractions.
Designate a Space for Learning
To keep the family organized, designate a special space just for home learning. Including a variety of school supplies in one place allows for ease of access and limits distractions. Allowing kids to help create the space and decorate with a few fun items will ensure they feel ready to learn each and every day.
Be Flexible & Find What Works for YOUR Family
Remember, every family is unique. Embrace distance learning by incorporating the best routines for your schedule and be flexible in what works for your family. Find beauty in new challenges and enjoy the extra time at home with loved ones.
